With Leopard here and Max 5 on the way I am wondering what the collective
wisdom is on upgrading. I am concerned that a new operating system and a
new software version together have the potential of causing some real
headaches. My tentative plan is to upgrade to Leopard very soon and run Max
4.6.3 for a few months. The consensus on the list seems to be that this is
save. Any thoughts or news flashes?
4.6.3 on Leopard here.
Running a patch with some externals (gigaverb~ and monoverb~), line objects, gain sliders, buffers, play objects…
Pretty simple. Seems to be working OK with my Firepod. I thought I had a system crash today when I opened my patch (mouse froze), but Spotlight responded to command+spacebar. I opened activity monitor through Spotlight and everything looked OK. The mouse even started moving again, so I don’t know what that was about.
I plan on buying the full license once my 9 month student license runs out, but I hope there will be a 4.6.4 (or other Leopard compatible solution) before 5 comes out. There may still be several months to wait for 5!
